  • This school needs to get intellectual, Professional teachers and staff,teacher's like, 5th grade teacher Ferrer & Crawford cannot educate these children. And the security guards are lazy, all they do is go to the store to get food & talk on their cell phone. Alot of kids in this school are bullies too.......This school needs a CHANGE!

  • This school needs to be a elementary school from Kindergaden, to 4th grade. Because kids in the higher grades are failing, and getthing bad grades. So far, this school is the worst scool in Paterson.
